McKissick Academy of Science and Technology: 2.25.2022

Week of February 28, 2022

This is such a fun time of the year! We are moving out of the colder weather and can see the beginning parts of a new season! Our Sharks have worked hard and we can see them growing and learning before our eyes!

We are so thankful that we are now able to welcome volunteers, parents for lunch, and field trips! We want to show off our learning and partner with you and our community more now! See below for all the many events we have planned now that we are able to do more face-to-face activities. Here at MAST, we believe learning and growing takes a "village" and community! We love doing life with you!


Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry

This takes extra planning and extra work to make sure the activities are standards-based and also FUN! Way to go Ms. Clark and thank you for all you do for our Sharks and school!
